Modern UI IE 11 slow loading new window/tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • The modern UI version of IE 11 is really slow everytime the link wants to open a new window or tab. This works fine in the desktop version of IE 11.  My system is running windows 8.1, all patches are up to date

  • Hi,

    You can try Network trace using the fiddler. Please do the following to collect the network trace:

    1. Download fiddler from
    2. Close all running browsers and IE windows.
    3. When you launch fiddler click on Tools -> Win8 Loopback Exemptions
    4. Click Exempt All
    5. Ensure Fiddler is in capture mode by click on File -> Capture Traffic (if you see a check mark fiddler is capturing data)
    6. Switch to Modern IE and load a new tab or a new window.
    7. If you experience slowness wait until the page fully loads then switch back to fiddler and stop the capture
    8. If you do not experience the slowness attempt the repro again.
    9. To stop the capture click on File -> Capture Traffic
    10. Save the data by clicking on File -> Save -> All Sessions
    11. Upload the fiddler.

    Also, i recommend you post this issue to internet explorer feedback home:
